So this is a building in the heart of Times Square that displays traveling exhibits. I have seen probably 6-8 exhibits here over the years some were excellent; King Tut, Pompeii, Dead Sea Scrolls, Terracotta Warriors, Spies and Vikings. Some were bad Avengers and Odyssey Shipwreck. They tend to be pricey even if you grab one of the many discounts... More

I really enjoyed this exhibit! It was better than the Launch Bay exhibit at Walt Disney World that I saw this April. It was interesting to see all of the costumes from all of the different Star Wars films. I liked all the parts with Padme's costumes, the droid part with BB-8, R2D2, and C3-PO, the senator costumes, the Stormtrooper... More

Went to have a look at the Star Wars costumes to get out of the heat for an hour or so. The displays where fantastic and lots of very interning facts to go with it Only down side was the staff seemed very bored, might have been because it was really quiet

We checked this out on a rainy day and glad we did, the exhibit started out with a brief film presentation, then we were led into the exit where we saw all kinds of memorabilia from the movies, life sized replicas of the characters and costumes from the movies. Well worth the price I thought.

Visited today all three current exibitions: Bodies, Vikings and Star Wars. The first one has a separate review and listing so I have reviewed and recommended it there. Of the Viking exhibition I can attest that such a wide collection of Early Historic Scandinavian artifacts in one place on display doesn't occur outside Denmark, so you should totally see it....

The star wars costume exhibit is great, totally worth it. Go early to avoid big crowds, I went at 10 am and the place was almost empty. By the time I left line to enter was starting to build. It is great to see the costumes so up close and to learn about their inspiration

we saw 2 0f 3 displays as we'd seed Bodies previously. The Star Wars costume exhibit was terrific and the Viking exhibit was very interesting also. It was cool which was nice on a hot day; unlike Madame Tussaud's.

This was a fantastic display of costumes from the starwars movies. Brilliantly placed and easy to see and photograph. They also had seating within the exhibit so you could take it all in. Staff were friendly and helpful.

My daughter and I enjoyed our day trip to see the authentic costumes found in the Star Wars movies. The attraction was small but impressive and will satisfy all true Star Wars fans. All costumes have detailed information, pictures and some video shots from the set.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
